Masonry Veneer Installation Systems Training In Australia

Click on photos to enlarge
Laticrete Hands-On Training in Australia

A LATICRETE Masonry Veneer Installation Systems hands-on educational and training seminar was recently held at the LATICRETE Australia HQ in Brisbane. This event coordinated by Adbri Masonry focused on the installation of Eldorado Stone and MVIS type materials with one of Queensland's largest and best known landscaping supply chains, Nuway.

The team from Nuway gained first hand experience using our masonry veneer installation system and Eldorado Stone materials.  Technical info and hands-on presentations were provided by one of our local Australian LATICRETE Queensland Technical Sales Representatives, Nick Collett and by Warren Miller from Adbri Masonry.

The morning workshop was a success and enjoyed by all.

LatiDrain Displays - Do YOU want one ?

Message from one of the LATICRETE field guys:

After we built these they have been bouncing around in the back of my LATICRETE truck going from Contractor to Distributor to Show from ND to IN they have no less than 7500 miles of travel with no failures.  Bonded mud didn't come loose, 3701 is not cracked, HYDRO BAN is not torn even though over time the walls have opened up and pulled away from the floor area about an 1/8" the HYDRO BAN is still perfect!

Service !

Hi Henry!
Just wanted to drop you a line to say thanks to Greg Sherwood my Laticrete rep and Dal Tile here in Rochester NY. I have a Panera Bread in Pennsylvania that needed Laticrete 1500 Series grout. I was having a hard time finding anyone that was stocking the colors and quantities I needed for the project locally in PA. The job was fast tracked and we had a short amount of time to get it to me. I contacted Greg and with the help of Joe Lawless at Dal Tile, they had it shipped direct right to the job, on time and within budget. As you know I am a big fan of Laticrete. This only proves why. Great company, great products and strong people with great customer service. Keep up the good work! Tile On!
